On this week’s episode of the podcast, I’m celebrating a quintet of women horror directors whose work has blown me away recently. I’m talking Chelsea Stardust, Nia DaCosta, Danishka Esterhazy, Leigh Janiak and Jackie Kong!
Throughout the episode, I mentioned the following episodes:
In an effort to keep celebrating women’s month for the rest of the year and beyond, I’m running down a quintet of books by women authors that I really enjoyed recently. The group includes Bari Wood’s The Tribe (the Valancourt version), Girl Sleuth by Melanie Rehak, Paula Hawkins’ A Slow Fire Burning, My Sister The Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite and Joan Didion’s Slouching Towards Bethlehem.
In the episode, I mentioned an episode I did last year about some excellent women hoirror writers, you can give that a listen here.
I’ll also plug a few things I have no real affiliation with aside from being a fan. If you dig discount digital books, check out Bookbub, if you like the same for audiobooks, I can’t recommend Chirp more!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been watching a lot of Winter Olympics lately! That got my pop culture gears going, so I started putting together an episode about winter sports flicks. In the first part, I get into moments in other films and then discuss hockey and figure skating movies! Part 2 will cover a wide variety of ski and snowboarding movies!
Welcome to the landmark 50th episode of The High Five Podcast! With this one, I decided to celebrate one of the all-time greatest action-comedy filmmakers to ever do it: Jackie Chan! What started as a celebration of Jackie Chanuary with some friends turned into me watching a whole of the master’s movies with no intent on slowing down anytime soon! I tried choosing one of his films from each decade starting with the 70s and making my way all the way up to the 20s, but of course I added in a few extras along the way.
You can read my initial reviews of latter day Chan films like Chinese Zodiac and The Foreigner if you feel so inclined. I also reviewed the wonderful Bleeding Steel on Episode 28 of this very show.
You knew there had to be some clips, right?!
Also, for good measure, here’s the Typhoon hovercraft toy commercial I mentioned while talking about Rumble In The Bronx.
On this week’s episode, I’m digging back into the comics Brian Michael Bendis had a hand in creating after moving from Marvel to DC a few years back. Expanding on Episode 41, this time I’m focusing on just the Wonder Comics imprint that he started which featured his own work as well as that of others like Mark Russell, Stephen Byrne, Amy Reeder, Joe Quinones, Sam Humphries and others on books like Young Justice, Wonder Twins, Amethyst, Jinny Hex Special and Dial H For Hero.
